Greetings Faith Family,
True freedom is a gift from God. The Bible states in John 8:36, "So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed."
During the month of July, we as Americans celebrate our freedom. As Christian citizens, we can rejoice that in this nation we have the freedom to worship and live out the faith that God has brought into our hearts.
We should, during this month, reflect upon the cost of our free- dom. Throughout our national history there have been brave men and women that God has raised up and used to both purchase and defend our freedoms. We must never take their sacrifice for granted.
During this month of celebration we need to realize our total dependence upon God, both as a nation and as individual believers. We need to enter this month in a season of prayer: praying for our leaders, our soldiers, our educational leaders, first responders, those without Christ as well as our brothers and sisters in Christ. Indeed we have much and many to pray for and about.
Minnie and I hope that each of you have a very blessed month as we re- joice in the precious gift of freedom both politically and spiritually that we as Americans and Christians enjoy.
By His Grace and for His Glory, Eric
